Good but not great!
I have purchased this eyeliner in 3 shades: black, taupe and nude. These eyeliners are very affordable and I love the range of shades available. However, these eyeliners have some positives and some negatives.
I'll start with the things I love about these eyeliners. They're very pigmented and glide across my skin so smoothly. They last all day on my lash line, and are easy to remove. They can also be smudged if you're going for that look. I also love the shades they come in. It's nice to see an affordable nude eyeliner as they're not all that easy to find.
Now on to the negatives. These aren't exactly waterproof because they don't hold up all that great on my water line. The nude shade does fade from my water line and require retouching throughout the day. I love how it looks when it has just been applied, but I usually can't be bothered to reapply to maintain the look. However, I've given this eyeliner four stars as it is still better than most!
Overall, these eyeliners are better than most and not bad by any means. They glide on easily and are well pigmented. However, they don't last that well on my water line like most other eyeliners. Additionally, I find it is hard to sharpen them to a point as they are so soft (maybe that will change once the weather cools down). These are good for the price though!

Creamy eyeliner with rich pigments
I bought this eyeliner for sale in the shade black and wasn't expecting it to be so amazing. The texture of the eyeliner is creamy and it glides on like a dream. The colour is rich and really pigmented so I use it in my waterline and to touch up my lashline. It lasts for a reasonable amount of time, however I can't comment on the waterproof factor as I have not tested that aspect of the product out.
What I absolutely love about this product, though, is the fact that it can be sharpened easily and the nub does not break off at the slightest pressure like most other eyeliner pencils. Will most definitely repurchase as it has the greatest quality for the price it comes at.
I also love the fact that there is a large range of colours to choose from as well.

I bought this in the sparkle black for extra night time glam.... The first few uses the product was perfect, glided on like the pack said. Lasted with very minor smudge, however, I found after a couple of uses that the sparkle pigments in the liner somehow meshed together to create some sort of block on the black, therefor making the eyeliner useless.... No matter how much I sharpened or cut the end, same problem. Wasn't so satisfied with this purchase but LOVE the idea of black liner with extra sparkle factor. xx

Great value for the quality
I love these creamy liners that glide on smoothly. I have the nude, black, green and taupe liners and I love them all. The nude is perfect for the bottom waterline and the black for the upper waterline to create the illusion of fuller lashes.

Only eyeliner I use
I've used a lot of eyeliners from cheap to expensive but this one by far is my favourite!
I use the nude one to line my waterline to give me that awake open eye look. It stays put all day and night, it doesn't seep out of my waterline and smudge down under my eyes. It stays in place whether I'm wearing it at a dancing concert or a wedding where I am crying.
I use the black one to line my upper tight line and to line the outer 1/3 of my eye. And once again it doesn't smudge anywhere it stays where I put it.
Because I put it in my tight and water lines it does make it a little difficult to remove but I wouldn't want it any other way, and now I have a great make up remover to take care of that, so no need to have to scrub my eyes anymore.

Great quality for a budget eyeliner
I have been impressed with the quality of this product, especially as it's from a budget brand. The pencil is highly pigmented and opaque. I only need one swipe of the pencil to get great colour payoff. The pencil has a creamy formula and it's easy to apply and blend. I have crepey eyelids and the pencil doesn't tug or pull on my skin. Once you've applied the pencil, you have a brief time to smudge the line. Once the pencil has set, it has great longevity without any smudges (I haven't yet used the pencil in sweltering hot weather). Because the pencils are a bit soft and their point is rounded, you can't draw a precise line with them. This is only an issue if you're using the pencil on your lower lash line.
I bought the pencils in green and bright blue. Green is good for a day look, but I prefer the bright blue for a pop of colour. Rimmel have released these eyeliners in a great range of colours. I'm going to be buying a few more of them!

Although Nude is a great colour for the waterline, I think it does wear away a little after a while. It is also very smudgable or blendable depending on what you're doing, so I've double this up as a base for my eyeshadow. It's got a slightly tacky finish so it works great for this job. Overall though, pretty good!

Glides like a dream, but slides!
I've liked quite a few Rimmel products before, including their mascaras, as well as some eyeliners, and I'm happy to add this to my list of favourites from Rimmel!
First off, this is a really pigmented and quite soft pencil from Rimmel. It glides on over skin quite well, but the downside is that it also slides a little (not so much on the lash line, but certainly on the water line), and isn't smudge proof! For something that claims to be waterproof, this sadly doesn't live up to it.
However, it is amongst the favourites for me, because I use the silver one to brighten up the inner corners and it does stay quite well there.

These are beautiful, creamy liners, they go on with no effort whatsoever, can be smudged out or left to set in place.
I picked up 005 Nude for my waterline and although I read rave reviews about using it particularly for this part of the eye I didn't experience great longevity, I think this is mostly because that part of your eye stays quite moist so the product is never able to fully set and just slowly wears away throughout the day. I still happily use the liner on my waterline because the colour is perfect for brightening up the eye without being stark like a white liner can be but I do feel like it needs maintenance during the day.

Perfect everyday liner
I have the colour nude that I use in the waterline to give a more awake look. I find the formula to be rich and creamy. They also have great colour pay off. I would consider buying more colours in the range.
